Update: TNA Tries To Throw Konnan’s Lawsuit Out

Ryan Clark


On 3/26, TNA filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Texas seeking the court to throw out the complaint filed by Konnan. Earlier in the month, Konnan served TNA Wrestling with lawsuit papers for racism and discrimination.

TNA is claiming Konnan signed a contract that made Ashenoff (Konnan) responsible for injuries suffered in the ring, and also agreed to not file a lawsuit for any damages based on participating in TNA.

In Konnan’s lawsuit, Ashenoff alleged he had a hip injury, and TNA negligently failed to produce proper trainers, which resulted in renal failure due to his ingestion of painkillers while with TNA, as well as that he suffered from racial discrimination while performing for TNA.

Konnan claims TNA directed him to play a Hispanic sterotype, and racial discrimination and trademark infringement for the use of the LAX Logo.

In TNA’s response, the company is asking that Konnan pay all of their attorney fees.
